I’ve been in hiatus land, but writing lots. I went to Calgary to cover two conferences and filed some copy on the oil sands for Petroleum Economist.
My piece, long in the gestation (thanks to the BP slick), on the oil majors growing gassier made the cover of last week’s Economist.
And, in addition to becoming Petroleum Economist’s new editor, I’m also launching a new “product” (in 21st-century media jargon) for the magazine. It will be called PE Unconventional — a pricey, but valuable, new source of intelligence on shale gas, oil sands, and shale oil.
As for Petroleum Economist, much has changed. There’s new management in place and the magazine has staffed up its editorial department.
Next auxiliary project: to pitch a book on America and oil.
